The United States of Erwo Stal is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Perseus with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 5.908 billion Erwo Stalians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Atlanta. The average income tax rate is 98.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Erwo Stalian economy, worth a remarkable 1,192 trillion Dollars a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 201,915 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

The red star of communism has been replaced by the gold star of the McRonald's badge, statues of famous citizens are erected or demolished on a purely partisan basis, invasive species are hunted by the gendarmerie, and it's best not to ask what goes into Atlanta Fried Chicken's secret blend of herbs and spices. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Erwo Stal's national animal is the Bald Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Eagleism.

Erwo Stal is ranked 204,983rd in the world and 9,031st in The North Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -21.45 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
